INNOVATIONS from members of
6RAR, Norforce and the Royal Tasmania
Regt have been recognised with top hon-
ours at the 2012 Defence Workplace
Health and Safety (WHS) Awards.
6RAR's rehabilitation and return to
work program, Capt Shane Sarlin's revi-
sion of the Norforce WHS Management
System and Capt Adam Mahoney's Royal
Tasmanian Regt Cold Weather Package
were among Army's eight award win-
ners announced at Fairbairn Defence
Establishment on April 20.
VCDF Air-Mshl Mark Binskin and
Director General Work Health and Safety
Lindsay Kranz presented the awards,
which recognise outstanding performance
by members and units in creating healthi-
er and safer work environments.
6RAR received a WHS award for cas-
ualty management, making administra-
tion and rehabilitation of wounded and ill
personnel a key function of command.
CO 6RAR Lt-Col Mark Jennings cre-
ated the reinforcement platoon facility for
management, administration and rehabili-
tation of unit casualties.
Lt Paul Nolan accepted the award on
behalf of the battalion.
"A lot of hard work goes into rehabili-
tating and reintegrating our soldiers and
the CO sees it as his highest priority to
get those members back into the battalion
and back to work," Lt Nolan said.
Capt Shane Sarlin, of Norforce,
received a WHS award for consolidating
parallel WHS systems into one system for
the unit, reducing duplication of effort.
He trained 160 members including
soldiers, sailors and Defence civilians in
"If we can incorporate safety, and
safety management systems into the work
that we already do, then everyone will do
it as part of their normal everyday excit-
ing jobs and we won't even have to think
about it," Capt Sarlin said.
Air-Mshl Binskin encouraged an open
WHS reporting culture within Defence.
"Everyone has a role in leadership to
make the system as good as it can be,"
